To know "when" with confidence, you need to understand "WHY?"This includes the newly discovered prophetic "timeline" seen in type in John's gospel (Chapter 7) of the 70th week of Daniel, the Res./ rapture, the 2nd Coming, and the Millennial Kingdom! Which includes the direct interaction of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and the inclusion of the Sabbath days to the Sabbatical cycle (by definition of the days of the feast itself)!This is exactly what the "feast of Tabernacles" itself shows. But what makes the account in John prophetic in "type" is the direct interaction of the Lord Jesus Christ! And HOW it is described He got there. And what was said during the only two days of the Feast it is recorded of Him being there (depicting; resurrection/ rapture, and His 2nd coming)!Whatever time or timing you are speculating for the 2nd Coming and (as this type in John shows) the start of the 70th week of Daniel to be, it must allow for the fulfilling of the Sabbath days to the Sabbatical year for the fulfilling of the Sabbatical cycle! This is what the 70th week is!It is a sabbatical cycle just as were the previous 69! And these cycles are counted from Rosh Hashanah/ the Feast of Trumpets, which is the beginning of the civil- governmental calendar year!
And isn't that exactly what we (or some of us) and the scriptures say we're to be looking for at this time? The establishing of Christ's civil government for His 1000 year reign!If your speculative timing for these do not have and show the fulfilling of these, then you may be close, but you still will be wrong! Because, as Jesus said to John the Baptist:Matt 3 15: 15And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.Yes, ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS needs to be and will be fulfilled by Jesus Christ concerning His 2nd Coming to establish His Kingdom of REST! And that "rest" is not only to the people of Israel, but to the whole world, and to the EARTH/ the land itself!Which is by biblical definition, the Sabbath Day and the Sabbatical year to its cycle! Which is the 70th week of Daniel itself! It is sad that there are those who will disregard God's given Feasts, in how they were given, commanded how and when they are to be observed, to know how the Lord must and will fulfill them!
And for those who say that they can't be more than reasonably sure or dogmatic about at least some of the prophetic scriptures, because "they don't want to put God in a box"!
This is nothing but an ignorant cop-out in my opinion! IT WAS GOD HIMSELF WHO PUT HIMSELF IN A BOX WHEN HE SAID:
Amos 3: Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?
The box God has put Himself into is that of His own Word! When people say that they do not want to put God in a box, they are actually saying that they do not want to hold God accountable to His Word and what He has said in it. And will then make up any way that seems right in their eyes for God to then fulfill His Word according to what they want!
In looking for Christ's coming and Kingdom:
